When it comes to receiving gifts, some people are content with the same old, same old. Others, however, know what they like, and the usual gifts just won’t do. They have a taste for the finer things in life, and *only the best will do. However, this doesn’t have to fill you with dread, oh no - quite the opposite in fact, because these people are the best to buy for, so long as you know what they like. Below, we’ve put together a few ideas - and who knows, you might be so taken that you pick up an extra gift just for you.
A Special Trip
There’s a special brand of person out there. These people don’t want to spend a week lying on the beach (why? We don’t know): they want adventure, always to be spending their holidays doing something different and utterly unique. The upshot of all this is that you’ll get to go along with them! Look at taking a barge trip through the canals of England, finding an old country estate to stay for the night, or look further afield and do one of the world’s best travel experiences.
If your partner is something of a connoisseur when it comes to all things tasty, then stock up on the best food and drink for their special day and beyond. Craft beer is particularly big at the moment, so buy a few favourites and get them in the fridge, or find a craft beer festival and buy two tickets. If they’re more into their hot beverages rather than beer, then the World Tea Directory should be your one stop shop for making sure they can have a supply of the best tea found in the UK and across the world. Also, don’t forget that gifts can be an opportunity to learn! A wine tasting experience will refine them even further and open them up to a whole new side of life.
Off the rack? Pfft, not for this one! Of course, not everything can be custom made or unique, but when it comes to buying a gift, why hold back? If they’re male, then something like a nice watch or special tie will be what they’re looking for. For women, a high-quality handbag, piece of jewellery, or enviable pair of shoes will make their day. These pieces will cost a bit more than the usual high street purchase, but they’ll be worn for years, and if the person you’re buying for likes the best, then they’ll have no complaints.
Hard to Find Editions
If you’re at a loss of what to buy, think about the person’s passions. What do they enjoy? If they have a favourite artist or band, then buying an original vinyl press of one of their albums will go down a storm. If they’re more of a reader than a listener, try to find a first-edition copy of their most beloved book. They’ll love to have these fine items on their shelf!
